Eddie Kingston Shares His Thoughts On Tagging With Claudio Castagnoli In AEW

No love lost between Eddie Kingston and Claudio Castagnoli

Eddie Kingston has plenty of enemies in the wrestling business, and an enemy from Kingston’s past crossed his path once more when Claudio Castagnoli joined AEW at Forbidden Door.

Claudio has been confirmed as the latest member of the Blackpool Combat Club, and is set to team with Kingston for Blood & Guts II. Obviously, Kingston is not happy about this, saying the following to MLive:

“Of course I didn’t like it. I don’t trust the guy,” Kingston said. “And people who say whatever they want to say about me, that I’m a hothead and I don’t let things go. I just know when I see bad people, I like to call him out on it.” 

Kingston showed his frustration with the situation at the close of Forbidden Door, cursing and spitting at Castagnoli when the two finally came face-to-face. It remains to be seen if they’ll be able to get along for Blood & Guts though, and Kingston plans to play rough in the cage:

“You’re not gonna see me come off the top of the cage,” Kingston said. “I’m gonna use the cage as a weapon. I’m going to kick, I’m going to punch, I’m going to bite. I’m going to try and make you quit. It’s called ‘Blood & Guts’ for a reason. Is there gonna be blood? Most likely. Is there going to be guts? You know, we’re going to spill our guts out there in front of all y’all. It’s just a violent place (the cage) and Detroit is a violent city, so it’s just perfect.”
